  • The College Counseling Process

    for a Successful Future
    All students are counseled individually about college applications. The process begins in the middle of junior year and involves individual conferences with students and parents, group counseling, and meetings with college admissions officers. Students are assisted in making their college choices and in completing the application procedure.

    The best preparation for a successful college process is a successful high school career. 
Students should work hard and do their best in an appropriate array of courses and they should engage as fully as they can in Trinity's extracurricular life according to their tastes and interests.

  • Grade 10

    There is no formal interaction with Trinity's college counseling process in the second year of high school though questions sometime arise and may be forwarded to the college office through a student’s dean. The College Counseling Office administers an optional Preliminary Scholastic Aptitude Test (PSAT) in October as a practice test to help students gain familiarity with the form of the SAT Reasoning Test. We advise against any formal preparation for the PSAT. A practice ACT is also given in the spring. 
  • Grade 9

    There is no formal interaction with Trinity's college counseling process in the first year of high school. Students are advised to work hard at their studies and engage actively in school life.
